I was grazing Ringo and the young ewes behind the horse barn yesterday. The about to lamb, fat ewes were on the pipeline pasture. A neighbor tested a couple of reload rounds (he fires into the ground) . Suddenly I had two groups of sheep at the gates wanting to go back to the barn. It was close to feeding time so I let them go home.
I've confirmed my electric fence packs quite a wallop.
Aria grazed today with Panda after they settled dominance with a couple headbutting bouts. I expanded the electric fence to let them graze another section of grass. Snip was NOT amused that he didn't get to graze. His turn is tomorrow.
The boys wouldn't graze by themselves either. Panda grazed in expanded area while I was sitting there until he found the fenceline. I guess the electric is too scary or they miss their doggy security guard.
Dominic hung out with me and fed the sheep a snack. Then he got a little too excited and pushy with the brush. Snip backed away but Dominic kept advancing. Snip "air butted" him, ie head down and hop forward without contact. I threw the other brush hard into Snip's side and chased him into shed with yells. Then they were put up for the night.
